replace [-?svIV] from to from to ... < fromfile > tofile
replace [-?|-I] [-s] [-v]
info -s silent -v verbose

\^ Match start of line. \$ Match end of line. \b Match space-character, start of line or end of line. For a end \b the next replace starts locking at the end space-character. A \b alone in a string matches only a space-character.
this command swaps a and b in the given files:
shell> replace a b b a -- file1 file2 ...
